The Front Edge of My Garage Floor Mat Will Not Stay Flat

Every once in a while we get a call from a customer who has a front edge of a garage floor mat that will not stay flat on the concrete. This issue is much more common when the product is purchased via a club store or home center that stores the product rolled OGarage Floor Mat Will Not Stay FlatR when a customer does not install the product right away and it stays rolled for a long period of time.

Another cause for garage floor mats not staying flat is when the leading edge is exposed a higher temperature range than the rest of the floor — in other words too much cold or hot air coming under your garage door. First, make sure the mat is NOT installed under the door but a 1/4″ – 1/2″ short of the door. If the problem persists you can consider replacing the seal on the garage door itself and / or adding a garage door threshold. I am not a fan of the garage door threshold in conjunction with the ribbed mat because it makes it difficult to push moisture and dirt out.

If the problem persists, we have had great success with 3M # 80 spray adhesive applied to the front edge of the mat itself.  For best results, apply this when the mat is relaxed. Another option is to use a double sided acrylic carpet tape.
